given flexibility to the department of defense only, we expect the senate to be more proud in its discretion. the senate has also released the federal fiscal year, 14, budget proposal and we are likely to see these levels of funding with the sequestration cuts continuing through the next year, so we have to pay close attention to the impacts on transportation, again the highway trust funds accounts are protected from these cuts, but there is general fund support of highway trust funds activities including the new starts program, we are monitoring to see any potential impacts to central subway, for example. and whether the federal government, will be looking to get the older, new starts projects off the books and putting funding on those projects first, or whether they will be doing across the board, cuts to all of the new starts programs. so we are looking forward to hearing what has come out of washington, from the legislative conference this week. and also, continuing to monitor the activities with mta and other partners. at this point, i will welcome mark watts to speak to the
